Child run over in accident

COVINGTON -- A 3-year-old boy was seriously injured Saturday evening when he was run over in the driveway of a White Birch Drive residence.

According to the Georgia State Patrol, the accident occurred when a 22-year-old man drove into the driveway to drop off a male passenger. The passenger got out of the GMT-400 truck and the 3-year-old came over to him and began talking with him.

The driver of the truck, believing that the child was with the passenger, began to back out of the driveway and ran over the child, according to the State Patrol.

The little boy was taken to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston.

No charges have been filed in the incident, according to the State Patrol.
